The incident led to the abrupt closure of all commercial activities as traders and business owners in the community closed shops to avoid being victims of looters who may want to cash out in the melee.

According to him: “There was a cult clash on Monday night, the cult people attacked themselves. The information available is that there was a clash between Eiye and Vikings.
